I realize this is probably old news to many by now, but there’s been a few updates to the Trey Anastasio arrested post we did detailing his pain-pill induced DWI charge in upstate New York.
When I first read the following, I nearly jumped out of my chair…
According to WNYT News in Albany, a quantity of heroin was also found in Anastasio’s car, and the artist told police he was smoking hashish and taking pills prior to his arrest. The District Attorney’s office refused to comment on that aspect of the case.
Heroin? Jesus H.
Supposedly that part of the case is up for debate, as this is something that only WNYT ran with and not other sources surrounding the case.
Phish principal Trey Anastasio made a surprise court appearance yesterday (Jan. 3) in Whitehall, N.Y., pleading not guilty to a drug possession charge that a prosecutor said could be bumped up to a felony.
Will the jury throw the book at Trey? Should Trey be held accountable for actually becoming a rock star? Should Trey learn how to pick up the phone to call his friends for a ride home?
